As if a coating of ice on the outside of your windscreen isn’t enough to deal with early in the morning, sometimes ice can also form on the inside of your windscreen.
There are a number of reasons why this can occur, as Basildon, Canvey and Southend Echo recently pointed out.
Of course, fundamentally it comes down to temperatures dropping low enough to freeze the moisture that remains inside your vehicle. Usually, it’s the excess moisture in a car that will cause the windscreen to ice over internally.
This can come from a variety of sources, such as damp or wet clothing left in the car, a window being left open, or even condensation resulting from having the car heater on a high setting just before you park up.
Some cars can have more challenging problems to fix, such as issues with ventilation or draining that result in it being damp much of the time. Don’t worry, however, as you can use reusable dehumidifier pads to help capture excess moisture in your vehicle and prevent it from causing issues.
When it comes to de-icing your windscreen, The Scotsman shared some advice last month. Among the top tips is to turn the vehicle on and set the fans to blow warm air on the windscreen. If you have air con, make sure you also switch this on to help remove the moisture from the air.
However, avoid using air recirculation when you’re deicing the inside of the windscreen as this will simply trap and recirculate the moisture inside your car.
